in the system now which is why healthcare is rising faster than any other cost. >> should this board be the one calling the tune and deciding all this? >> let's hear what that calls the shots. >> there are some differences. we didn't raise taxes. you've raised them by a trillion dollars under obamacare. we didn't put in place a board that can tell people ultimately what treatments they are going to 70. we don't need to have a board of 15 people telling wlaws kinds of treatments we should have. >> let me just point out first of all this board that we're talking about can't make decisions about what treatments are given. that's explicitly prohibited in the law. what this is, is a group of healthcare experts, doctors, et cetera, to figure out how can we reduce cost of care in the system overall. >> the problem is the board controls the money. and if the doctor chooses to go with a special treatment that the board has not envisioned, they cut off his money. >> don't insurance companies do that right now? >> i don't think so. >> of course. >> if they don't like the treatment, if they think it's too
. >>> jobs, taxes, healthcare, and big bird! the first perez dishl debate is in the book -- presidential debate is in the books. >> looking at the cbs news instant polls, the former governor apparently knocked it out of the park. 500 uncommitted voters were asked who won this debate. 46% said romney was the winner, while only 22% said that the president was the victor this time. as for their view of romney, the man who has been fighting to ensure that he relates to the average american, 56% of the polls said they had a better opinion of the former governor after this debate. what started out as cordial quickly became heated. >> his proposal calls for a $5 trillion tax cut on top of $2 trillion of additional spending for the military. and he is saying that he is going to pay for it by closing loopholes and deductions. he's been asked over 100 times how he would close those loophole, and he hasn't identified them. >> if the tax plan he described airplane tax plan i was asked to support, i'd say absolutely not. i'm not looking for a $5 trillion tax cut. i've said i won't put in place a tax
previously that obamacare, the healthcare tax law would be, quote, great for democrats. well, the seniors i've heard from don't think it's at all great. that over $700 million is being taken out of medicare to pay for the programs. i've heard from so many folks who -- cardiologists gotten out of the cardiology business. he will be a researcher rather than providing those services, so seniors are going to be having, and are already seeing, difficulty in getting access to physicians because of obamacare taking so much money out of medicare and my general view is that healthcare decisions ought to be made by doctors and patients, not government panels up in washington. >> mr. kaine? >> social security and medicare, again, george as a saerns voted for -- senator, voted for a very risky privatization scheme for social security and i can tell you if i'm in the u.s. science, i will fight efforts to privatize social security till my last breath. it would have been a disaster. let's talk about medicare. george suggests i want to take money out of the medicare program. the 700 billion he refers to wa

're not going to have that doctors or medical personnel to support that. i think we need a health-care revision. there's no question about that. but we need a health care revisions that's going to allow a marketplace to compete to bring down the cost. we need to be able to buy insurance across state lines. that means states have to get out of mandates for insurance. we need tort reforms to bring down the cost and we need accessibility for insurance. we need affordability for insurance. this current law is not going to do that. it will continue to drive up health-care costs and the cost of insurance premiums. >> you have 90 seconds. >> let me tell you why -- why i have dedicated my life to the idea that everyone should have access to decent health care. there's a woman in connecticut who has worked hard all her life and so has her husband. her husband was switching jobs and in between those two jobs, during the week he was unemployed, their son was diagnosed with cancer. when it would to get insurance on her husband's new plan, they would not provide for because he had a pre-existing condition.
not necessarily keep up with health-care inflation, this would cost the average senior about $16,000 per -- $6,000 per year. year, but governor romney has said is he will maintain traditional medicare alongside it. there is still a problem. those insurance companies are clever about figuring out who are the younger and healthier seniors. they recruit them, leaving the older, sicker seniors in medicare. every health-care economist as said overtime, the traditional medicare system will collapse. you have people, like my grandmother, at the mercy of the private insurance system when they are most in need of decent health care. i do not think vouchers are the right way to go. this is not only my opinion. aarp thinks the savings we obtained from medicare bolstered the system, lengthened the medicare trust fund by eight years. benefits were not affected. if you repeal obamacare, those seniors will pay $600 more in prescriptions. there will have to pay co-pays. for basic checkups that can keep them healthier. the primary beneficiary of that repeal our insurance companies that are estimated to gain bi
for us to deal with medicare in particular is to lower health-care costs. when it comes to social security, as i said, you don't need a major structural change in order to make sure that social security is there for the future. >> follow-up on this. first, governor romney, in a two minutes on social security and entitlements. >> our seniors depend on these programs, and i know anytime we talk about entitlements, people become concerned that something is going back and that's going to change the life of the worst. the answer is, neither the president nor i are proposing any changes for any current retirees or near retirees either to social security or medicare. so if you're 60 or around 60 or older, you don't need to listen any further. for younger people, we need to talk about changes that are going to be occurring. i just thought about one. i was wrong when i said the president is proposing for any changes for current retirees. he is on medicare, not on social security. on medicare, for current $716ees, he's cutting million from the program did he says it's by not overpaying hosp

, you will be on our side. if you think that doctors and patients should be making healthcare decisions rather than panels of bureaucrats in washington, you should be on our side. if you want a job, the approach i have been advocating is proven to work over 300,000, when we are working together. republicans and democrats making regulations more reasonable, taxes lower, freezing college tuition to make sure it is accessible and affordable to virginia. indeed, if you care about the future of your children or grandchildren, you should be on our side. i hope to be your voice in washington, the hard-working taxpaying families of virginia need someone on their side in washington. i hope to be there working for you and making sure that all americans, no matter their background, have that opportunity to cast their dreams. >> the economy is ready for a break. there are positive signs from last week, but i think that congress is the ankle weight right now. i think that the in it -- toge. the decision to filibuster and block a veteran jobs bill and farm bill before election day is a perfect examp
on the economy, taxes, healthcare, and both candidates came out swinging. fox 5's tom fitzgerald kicks off our coverage tonight. >> will and shawn, good to see you this evening. what we're going to do for you right now is a little bit of post game. this first presidential debate is now in the books and what we have for you here is a panel. a panel we have assembled, a group of folks who have different views on all of this. we'll get to them in a minute and let you know about them. first, start off with one of the very first topics of the debate tonight between mitt romney and president obama. when both men talked about their economic priorities. >> governor romney has a perspective if we cut taxes and roll back regulations that we'll be better off. i have a different view. >> that was president obama there. we have mitt romney also that we want to hear from in a bit. bruce stern's attorney worked on the reagan campaign in '84. you're the treasury. you heard president obama talk about what his economic priorities were. was there anything in there that as a republican, you thought that might
's given us healthcare reform. it gave us the failed stimulus. the only shovel ready project really funded in a large sort of way was adding additional trillion dollars debt on our middle class. it also gave us not necessarily an energy policy but an environmental policy. you don't have to look very far down the veto to see the closing plant. it will cost us 35 jobs. it's going to cost the city of billings over $10 million a year in income in the surrounding area. that's entire city of billings. that's the kind of economics we've gotten from the failed policy of president obama and from the failed policy of senator tester. >> congressman rehberg didn't answer the question why we should vote for him. the fact of the matter is, we had a broken healthcare system and making sure people with people with preexisting condition have coverage. we have to hold insurance companies accountable. as far as the stimulus package goes, the shiloh road congressman provides avenue to get to one of your developments. the fact is that the work that was done, is critically important we're going to move forward
, health-care costs have gone up by $2,500 per family. the question is how to get them going again. it is energy and trade. the right kind of training programs. the president mentioned those ideas. education. it is key. it is the future of our economy. we have 47 training programs. they are reporting to eight agencies. we have to get those dollars back to the states and to the workers so they can create pathways into training they need for jobs that will help them. taxation. we should bring the tax rates down. for corporations and individuals. for us not to lose revenue, i lowered deductions and credits and intentions so we keep taking in the same money when you account for growth. energy is critical. the president pointed out that production of oil and gas in the u.s. is up but not due to his policies -- in spite of his policies. all of the increase in natural gas and oil has happened on private land, not on government land. your administration has cut the number of permits and licenses in half. if i am president, i will double them. i will get the oil from offshore and alaska. i
health-care costs. when it comes to social security, you do not need a major structural change to make sure it is therefore the future. >> we will follow up on this. you have two minutes on social security and entitlements. >> our seniors depend on these programs. any time we talk about entitlements, people become concerned. neither the president nor i are proposing any changes for any current retirees or near- retirees either to social to carry or medicare. if you are 60 or older, you do not need to listen any further. for younger people we need to talk about what changes will occur. when i said the president is not proposing changes, he is for medicare. for medicare, for current retirees, he is cutting $700 -- money. everyone will get a low rate is not just going out the places where there is abuse. that is saying we are cutting the rates. hospitals and nursing homes say they will not take any medicare patients. 50% of doctors say they will not take more medicare patients. we have 4 million people on medicare advantage that will lose medicare advantage because of those $716 billion i
that costs are going down and over the last two years, healthcare premiums have gone up, it's true but slower than any time in the last 50 years. so we're already beginning to see progress in the meantime folks out there with insurance you are already getting a rebate. governor romney says we are going to replace it with something. but he hasn't described what we would replace it with other than saying we're going to leave it to the state. the fact of the matter is that some of the prescriptions that he has offered, there's no indication that that is going to help somebody who has a preexisting condition able to buy insurance. by repealing health care you -- >> let's let the governor explain how you would replace it? >> romney: number one preexisting conditions are covered under my mine. number two, young people are able to stay on their own plan. and let's come back to something we agree on which is the key task we have in health care is to get the costs down so it's more affordable for families and then he has a model for doing that a board of people at
for us to do with medicare in particular is to lower health-care costs. but when it comes to social security, as i said, you don't need a major structural change in order to make sure that social security is there for the future. >> will follow up on this. first, governor romney, you have two minutes on social security and entitlements. >> well, jim, our seniors depend on these programs, and i know anytime we talk about entitlements, people become concerned that something's got to happen that's going to change their life for the worse. the answer is neither the president nor i are proposing any changes for current retirees or near retirees, either to social security or medi-scare. so if you're 60 or run 60 or older, you don't need to listen any further. but for younger people, we need to talk about what changes are going to be occurring. all, i just thought about one bit that is, in fact, i was wrong when i said the president isn't proposing any changes for current retirees. in fact, he is on medicare put on social security he's not. but on medicare, for current retirees, he's cutti
on the economy and one each onro healthcare, the role ofan government and governing. with an emphasis throughout onc differences specifics, and choices. both candidates will also have two minute closing statements. s promised to remain silent. no cheers, applause, boos, hisses, among other noisy, distracting things, so we may all concentrate on what the candidates have to say. there is a noise exception right now, though, as we welcome president obama... and governor romney. [cheers and applause] >> reporter: gentlemen, welcome to you both. >> gentlemen, welcome to you both. let's start the economy, seth one and let's begin with jobs. what are the major differences between the two of you about how you you go about creating new jobs?w you have two minutes. each have two minutes to start. a coin toss has determined, mr. president, you go first. >> thank you very much, jim, yu for this opportunity. i want to thank governor romnek and university of denver for your are hospitality. there are lot of points i wantr to make tonight but the most important one is that 20 years ago i became the luckiest ma
and the the economy toealt healthcare to h his green g energy program and saying, americans republican and and democrat need leadership and he is prepared to provide it.ovid the president keeping his cool which was said by the punditsbe to be one of the challenges for him tonight and saying leadership requires more than just lofty goals, it requires specifics and he didn't see see them from the governor. mitt romney looking mostly oh he veronica moser at president at president obama when making his points and president obama be looking mostly at jim lehrer or looking down. wanting to communicate directly to the viewers at home, past the moderator. there was mostly respectful sparring in a robust debate. the moderator, jim lehrers was not nrsly in control, but not ineffective. this is the first time we have seen the candidates go back and forth. instead of hearing from a moderator, we got to hear from them. >> that's right. he watched a lot of the time, as the candidates went back and forth. you know, we were wondering what governor romney would be like, coming in, whether he would go o
was in an accident... i was worried the health care system spoke a language all its own with unitedhealthcare, i got help that fit my life. information on my phone. connection to doctors who get where i'm from. and tools to estimate what my care may cost. so i never missed a beat. we're more than 78,000 people looking out for more than 70 million americans. that's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare. neil: i want you to look at this crux of people in spin alley as they call it, and i'll chat shortly, a very astute observation that there's more romney people in that throng than there are obama people, and i think she's right. i'm looking at that. that doesn't necessarily mean anything, but if you want to get your people out in force, and you feel good about the job you think your guy did, then it's no trouble for you even to leave the debate early, as many did, rudy juliani was here before the thing finished. the president had his surrogates out there as well. this is a fascinating what i call a right of passage in politickings -- politics and debate history. you watch a debate, how should i feel? di
was worried the health care system spoke a language all its own with unitedhealthcare, i got help that fit my life. information on my phone. connection to doctors who get where i'm from. and tools to estimate what my care may cost. so i never missed a beat. we're more than 78,000 people looking out for more than 70 million americans. that's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare. she's "time's" assistant managing editor. rana, i wonder what you thought about the two candidates as they talked about the economy. how did their plans measure up against each other? >> i think the key issue is taxes and i think you have to wonder whether romney's math adds up. i think we're still left really wondering about a lot of details, about how this plan is going to garner the revenue he's talking about. i think we still don't know what sort of loopholes are going to be closed. and whether or not the math can be made to work without opening up contentious loopholes like the mortgage interest deduction. but i think there's a biggest math issue here and that's whether or not lowering tax rates creates jobs
, the individual mandate. if the health-care law is repealed, would you favor keeping pre-existing conditions coverage, and if so, how would you pay for it? >> i support repealing the health care act. i think that is important. what i hear from people across the state is that they overwhelmingly support it as well. we don't like the individual mandate, we don't like government coming between a doctor and patient. pre-existing conditions -- you know, i am visiting with nebraskans and at that is important that we address that and i believe the united states senate will come together to address it. what i will tell you is that we won't pay for it by stealing over $700 billion from medicare, because that was the trade-off on health care act now. that was the deal that was made. that is not sound policy. everybody knows it is not sound policy. what we can do is look for savings. we can look for savings with tort reform, because over 1/4 of the medical procedures that are required now are unnecessary. that is one way we can look for the money. >> letter kerrey? -- senator kerrey? >> first of all, i
accomplishments. i thought that the healthcare debate was interesting and that romney was able to attempt to draw contrasts between what he had done in massachusetts and what the president has done and basically the difference is putting it in the state's hands than the federal government. >> gretchen: exactly. heather 10 seconds. >> romney did an outstanding job. obama is trying to turn him into to thurston howell . romney came across as sympathetic as to the problems americans face. he did it with knowledge of the facts. he did not need a teleprompter. >> gretchen: thank you for your time this morning. >> thank you, >> thank you. >> gretchen: the president used aarp to support romney's plan. maybe he should have checked with them first. they were not happy about it. >> and next to morning. ann coult yoer and larry the cable by and senator john mccain. stay with us. when making soup. mmmm!
